    Default How to enter Radio code

    I took off the battery and now when I started my car the radio is not working. My code is 3454 but I am having difficulty entering it. The car is 2000 model and has a cd player and tape recorder in it with a narrow screen. It says (step/trial) 1 then I enter (press) 3 but then I cannot enter the remaining numbers of 3454. It just takes it to (trial) 2. Then I have to enter a number again and it takes me to trial 3 and then it switches off for twenty minutes. How can you enter all 3454 all at once. Thank you.

    Press the actual numbers on the preset buttons to correspond with the radio code.
    Do you remember if the preset buttons all worked before?

    When you enter the code the numbers on the screen will be different to what you actually typed in this is normal But is this what you are talking about?

    I think I figured out the problem, the keys are hard to press and sometimes when I press a key it gets pressed two times or does not register. I will keep trying but the thing shutting down after three tries for an hour is super annoying.

    My number four button was the problem. I entered the code and pressed the crap out of the number four button and it worked.

    Must have been some of that dust you have over there that got behind the button contacts!

    They don't have dust, they have SAND! Oh and oil. And camels. And Rollers, Ferraris and apparently, Commodores
